Oak-Park style table questions - Pt. 2 - features?
Probably should have posted pt. 1 in this forum but anyway,,
I am in need of a Router table, and I have decided basically what I want to build. Something very simple, inspired by the Oak-Park style table. But long enough to also work as a bench or assembly table.
It will live under a roof, but exposed to open air.
I have settled on a 2' x 4' workbench type table, with the Router mount near one end. Top will overhang around 2" on 3 sides (for clamping), and one end with no overhang and a Moxon type vise. Probably a 3/4" plywood + 1/2" birch plywood for a 1-1/4" top. Might cover with Laminate, not sure.
No vacuum hookups, nothing fancy in the way of Fences (just clamp-on).
I may decide to put bench-dog holes but not sure - A strip clamped across the width of the table may work just as well as bench dogs, and no need for holes..?
My main question is, what are the simple (DIY) features you built into your table and why do you like them? Or what did you find you did NOT like about your work bench?
